possible new way of cooking for me

October 18th, 2006 at 10:53 am

Well, I am a little pleased with myself today. My last shopping venture was $120 for all the groceries and non food items for 2 weeks. That was half of the budget for the month. I went over it yesterday because I had to get more milk and some more diapers for DD. I don't feel bad about it though, because DH gets paid again in a few days and we still have plenty of food. So, I'm thinking that I might not have to spend as much this shopping trip.
I bought whole chickens on sale last time and I cooked them and deboned them to put the meat in casseroles and made a big pot of chicken and dumplings with some of it. I have never cooked this way before, but it seems like it saved money.
If I can keep this 2 weeks spending for groceries on the low side I may be able to recoup the loss for the car troubles that we had to break from the budget to pay. At least recoup some of it. $200 is a big chunk to take out of this tiny budget right now.

    Those car things get ya. We've had several of those things lately. One of the ideas I have gotten from here is to put a bit away for those emergency repairs. Hard to do, I know, when your budget is tight. But I think you are on the right track with the groceries so maybe some daylight will shine in the budget soon. That is where we've made some advances--grocery budget. I, too, am cooking more from scratch. Sounds like you should be pleased with yourself. Way to go!
